Natasha Poly on jewelry and beauty
According to the model, she has a weakness for jewelry, but for her is not important the price, but an event that is associated with it. Therefore, most of all she loves her wedding ring. “When dressing up for some way out, I always remember the phrase by Chanel: picking up the decoration, remove the last you put on. Indeed, a little more jewellery – and you already look tasteless. I think that when a woman wears a lot of jewelry, it is old. I remember my first decoration I bought it myself – long earrings in vintage style. But the first really expensive purchase was a watch Rolex. Small, but for me it embodied some new, unlike the former, a life which I was timidly entering. Today, the watch is worn by my mother”.
